Clint Black and Joe Nichols have got jokes.
Just before hitting the stage to perform at The Academy of Country Music's Superstar Duets Special, the pair couldn't stop teasing each other backstage.
"People don't realize, this man smells terrific," Nichols divulged, singing his duet partner's praises. For his part, Black said that he only asked Nichols to join him because "he's always been an underdog being too tall for country music, so I thought I'd do the guy a favor."
The pair performed Black's 1997 hit "Nothing But the Taillights" for the event, which also featured collaborations from Reba and Brooks & Dunn; Alabama and Eli Young Band; Dwight Yoakam and Sam Hunt; Patty Loveless and Miranda Lambert; among others.
"I've told Clint many times today that I'm a huge fan and have been for a long time," Nichols said. "I've worn out many of his records and for me to get the chance to do this is a big honor. [It's] something I've always dreamed of doing."
And the love-fest was mutual.
"I'm a big fan of Joe's, too," Black added. "He's got a great voice and great talent. I've been listening to him for years so for me, I'm flattered and humbled that he would agree to do this with me."
Luckily for this pair, Black and Nichols were able to take the stage just before a hurricane brought the event to a halt. Through a delay of several hours, fans were ushered into the service level of Globe Life Stadium in Arlington, Texas, where Black and Nichols were the only act to make it a point to mix and mingle with the crowd. Posing for selfies and signing autographs, it was the least they could do to show their appreciation.
Cracking about the "electrifying" lightning show, Black got serious for a moment. "There is something to be said that the way it affects us, we're already glad that they got out of their homes and showed up," he said, "but when fans stick around in the bad weather, it really does something for you up there."
